  Stripped or unstripped?  Can you show me the "objdump -h" output for both?

  DW2 debug (now default over stabs) is pretty big; here's a freshly built
copy of 'ld':

admin@ubik /usr/build/obj-binutils/ld/.libs
$ cp ld-new.exe ld-n.exe

admin@ubik /usr/build/obj-binutils/ld/.libs
$ strip ld-n.exe

admin@ubik /usr/build/obj-binutils/ld/.libs
$ du -h ld-new.exe ld-n.exe
5.2M    ld-new.exe
768K    ld-n.exe

admin@ubik /usr/build/obj-binutils/ld/.libs


    cheers,
      DaveK
